The Sessions – A live re-staging of the Beatles at Abbey Road Studios will head out on tour around the UK next Spring, with one night planned in Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena on the 7th of May 2016.

This multi-million pound production is set in a painstakingly accurate replica of the world-renowned Abbey Road studio, recreating Abbey Road Studio 2 and producer George Martin’s control room on the floor of the Hydro.

Inspired by Here, There and Everywhere, the memoir of the show’s Creative Consultant and Grammy-winning former Abbey Road sound engineer Geoff Emerick, The Sessions will be the closest an audience can get to experiencing The Beatles live and at the height of their glory.

Set in a state-of-the-art reproduction of the iconic Abbey Road Studio 2, The Sessions will stage breath-taking, musically spectacular new live renditions of the timeless albums recorded there by The Beatles, to take us on a joyous, thrilling, historically authentic voyage through the events that shaped popular music history.

In this production, 45 people will take the stage. Eight studio technicians; a 21 piece orchestra using the exact musical arrangements of the originals; seven musicians using rare, vintage, historically accurate instruments to recapture the Beatles’ renegade multi-instrumentalism; and seven vocalists will comprise 2 ‘Johns’ 2‘Pauls’ 2 ‘Georges’ and one ‘Ringo’ in order to recreate the albums’ vocal harmonies. All this will come together to let you relive the ‘eureka’ moments that created The Beatles’ era-defining sound and changed recorded music forever.

Each of the albums recorded at Abbey Road will become a ‘suite’, driving the true story of how they made the records that shaped the next half century of popular music and culture.

Following a Charity Preview show in Liverpool’s Echo Arena, the tour will move on to perform an already-sold-out date at the Royal Albert Hall and will then travel to arenas across the UK, including Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena on the 7th of May 2016.

The arena show will place the audience around three sides of the ‘Studio’, with venue capacities limited to place the audience at eye-level with the performers and maintain the fly-on-the-wall intimacy of the piece. So make sure you get your tickets soon!
